Les Beguinages I – Beghinae by Psallentes

Les Beguinages I

“Statue de Sainte Begge. (XVIIIe siècle. Sacristie du Béguinage d’Hoogstraten.) Réalisme des statues habillées flamandes faisant l’objet d’un culte populaire.”

Beghinae Psallentes Hendrik Vanden Abeele

Taken from Mademoiselle Van Bever, Beguinages. Bruxelles, Editions du Cercle d’Art, 1943.

Psallentes has made a much acclaimed Beghinae-album. Ask for it in your local CD-store.

“Have you ever seen any beguines? We haven’t either. Those devout laywomen of centuries past are no more. But would you like to hear them sing? That is possible. The Beghinae of Psallentes sing works from manuscripts found in the beguinages of Bruges, Antwerp and Amsterdam, among others. Beguines? They appear before your very eyes.”

You can also find the album on iTunes.
